What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Passengers injured in airplane crash landing file lawsuit

Posted on November 14th, 2012 No Comments

Some of the passengers of a flight from New Jersey to Poland that was forced to crash land last year are suing Boeing and the company who inspected the plane before takeoff.

When the plane reached Warsaw, it was forced to crash land because a mechanical defect would not allow the landing gear to deploy. Sparks flew from the plane’s metal body as it screeched to a halt on the runway. Emergency responders muffled a fire that issued from the aircraft right away. Its pilot was commended for avoiding any errors and safely bringing down the aircraft despite the equipment malfunction.

The passengers filing the lawsuit claim to have both psychological and physical injuries. The legal action asserts that the Boeing 767 model that crashed has a design flaw that allows its hydraulic system to leak. Such a leak should have been detected in the pre-flight inspection.

The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages.

Flight inspectors and airlines are responsible for ensuring they are operating within the confines of aviation laws. This includes performing necessary inspections on aircraft with the care and effort required to ensure passenger safety.
